CB2 Insights reports that roughly 35% of medical cannabis patients are treating either anxiety, depression, or PTSD. Additionally, approximately 34% use cannabinoid therapy for pain relief and 15% for sleep disorders. The one thing this study leaves out is that 100% of cannabis consumers benefit from consumption. Specifically, they benefit their indigenous endocannabinoid system whether they consume for recreational or medicinal reasons.
With cannabis legalization happening in more places than ever before, a new consumer base is entering into the cannabis sector. CB2 Insights estimates that 15% of consumers have little experience with cannabis with 22% having no experience at all.
Keep in mind the same research from CB2 Insights finds the internet or web to provide misinformation for consumers and recommends seeking advice from a medical professional. I mean, after all qualified medical professionals have been helping us all to gain better health for so many years now. You can sense a little bit of sarcasm here as it is the physicians who have been prescribing opioids, benzos, and other deadly pharmaceuticals.
Researching cannabis can be done effectively by using credible websites to conduct your research such as the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), NORML, and the National Hemp Association to name a few.
One thing we do know from the CB2 Insights reports is that more and more people are turning to cannabis. More specifically – it seems they are turning to cannabis for mental health, pain, and a good night’s sleep.
